  1. Really? I guess I learned something new again.
  2. You mean "assembler" 😉😆 haha sorry I like to nitpick on that one whenever I see people post it LOL
  3. Yep, and those youngsters keep saying, what do you old farts know! It's "totally different this time!" Anyway, NFTs seem to be coming down in valuation (what valuation?!), along with the whole CHOC (Crypto House Of Cards). The whole crazy situation looks even worse than 1999/2000...
  4. Let's not make this only about me! LOL! Just starting the discussion.
  5. I think punishment should be to eat only Chuck E. Cheese pizzas for a year.
  6. Uh... you guys know about NFTs right? Haha! And even going beyond NFTs, apparently an invisible statue was sold for $18k! https://www.foxnews.com/lifestyle/invisible-sculpture-sells-18-thousand
  7. I don't think a complete rewrite is necessary. The hardest part is actually looking through the code and understanding how it was done, and figuring out where to insert new subroutines to add in the new stuff. Plenty of space to muck around, without being limited to 8K haha!
  8. $225 on Amazon. Just FYI for those who might be looking to get one, there is also the binocular types that you look through (the LCD panel gives a flat image, the binocular optics gives you 3D). AmScope SE400-Z About the same price.
  9. Bit about Doug Neubauer and Star Raiders: http://www.sonic.net/~nbs/star-raiders/author.html
  10. Here's a link to Lorenz Wiest's amazing achievement. (He is here by the way. Hi Lorenz!) I think we can start with his code (instead of the original source code) because he documented how it works. Now we don't even need to type in the assembly code from the original listing. https://github.com/lwiest/StarRaiders Original discussion here
  11. Just to add to the ideal Wish List, maybe a Tractor Beam thing might be good. You would have disabled vessels and/or cargo packages that you tractor, and then you need to hyperspace to the starbases with them (these assets can also be damaged by enemies). If successfully rescued you get bonuses from them (rescued vessels might power up the weapons or even give strategic information such as location of enemy bases). Maybe cargo doesn't need to be taken to starbases but tractoring them can give you ammo and energy.
  12. So, after quite a bit Google detective work, I found what looks like a VERY SIMILAR direct China no-name model; probably uses the same electronics/firmware: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32825792006.html?spm=a2g0o.productlist.0.0.4a267fd2cqCZV0&algo_pvid=null&algo_expid=null&btsid=0b0a555316224921090282987eae0d&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_,searchweb201603_ and it says you can use the SD card for photo/video. Are you plugging it into the computer via USB? It might not transfer video that way, maybe just use the SD card and record on it?
  13. I am just getting into high speed design myself (as a hobbyist). Any suggestions? I have come across a "black magic" book on it, but that's about it.
  14. They seem to have a Japanese presence but probably the inside electronics and lenses are the same. Better looking exterior. I was thinking maybe the Japanese instructions (if can be found) might be clearer.
